An Apology to Pope Francis and a Change of Direction

He saith to him again: Simon, son of John, lovest thou me? He saith to him: Yea, Lord, thou knowest that I love thee. He saith to him: Feed my lambs. He said to him the third time: Simon, son of John, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved, because he had said to him the third time: Lovest thou me? And he said to him: Lord, thou knowest all things: thou knowest that I love thee. He said to him: Feed my sheep. (St. John 21:16-18)

I am done with the Church wars.

I, obviously, have a difference in opinion with the Holy Father and many high ranking members of the Church today on a wide variety of issues. But I have been unfair to the Holy Father, Pope Francis, openly libelous towards him and other members of the Church, and I would like to publicly express my apologies.

We cannot allow doctrinal differences to bleed into personal attacks against the Holy Father and Church leadership. Our King, Jesus Christ, demands that we pray for our leaders, not attack them.

That is what Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI is doing in the Vatican right now. That is what we should be doing for Pope Francis and for the Church. They are governing the Barque of Peter in a world that is overwhelmingly hostile to the Catholic Faith. They need our prayers, not our suspicions and condemnations.

I would say to the people who are hostile to Pope Francis that there is a difference between the unwise and the illegal. Much of what has changed in the Church since 1958 has been unwise. None of it has been illegal. We are called as Catholics to pray for the Church, not to condemn it. That road leads nowhere good. It does not lead to God.

While I will be writing about current events in the Church occasionally, this blog will be dedicated to the beautiful and the true in the Catholic Faith, expressed through the ages by countless devout Catholics.

The Holy Father, Pope Francis, has my prayers and my obedience.

Pope Benedict and Cardinal Sarah's Book Presages Something Wicked Coming Our Way

"The Church today is going through a moment of anxiety. Some are practicing self-criticism, one might say to the point of self-destruction. It is like an acute, complex internal uheaval that no one would have expected after the council......The Church is being struck by those who are part of it." - Paul VI, Discourse at the Lombard Seminary in Rome (December 7, 1968)

If you want to know why Pope Benedict XVI and Cardinal Sarah felt compelled to release "From the Depths of Our Hearts" you would do well to re-read this article from early December by Lifesite.

I am not sure how much of the chatter surrounding Francis' plans Benedict hears - or wants to hear - but I do know that Cardinal Sarah hears all of it. Prefect for the for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, Sarah is a faithful Cardinal but also a man who has been in the Vatican a very long time. 

It is unquestionable that he knows what Team Francis plans to include in the upcoming "Exhortation" springing from the Amazon Synod. The same people talking to Kasper are talking to Sarah. The content of what is to be included so alarmed Sarah - and apparently it reached the ears of Benedict - that they decided to release this remarkable intervention in the Church and public defiance of Francis and his well-known plans.

If Kasper is saying that the Exhortation will exceed the recommendations of the Amazon Synod, all bets are off. The Synod proposed truly radical change - married men of proven virtue in, but not limited to, the Amazon, exploring ordained female deacons, the creation of an Amazonian rate - so what does "go beyond" mean?

Francis is not a particularly scholarly individual but he does possess a certain low-cunning. He is a political animal, like Paul VI, interested in politics and politicians as much or more than he is interested in Church affairs. I would not put it past him that he sets off a bomb - "making a mess" he calls it - when he finally releases his letter. All indications point to that indeed being so.

The next move will be made by others.

Benedict's Last Act - Martyrdom

"No one is richer, no one is more powerful, no one is freer than the one who knows how to abandon himself and everything and put himself in the lowest place."
Imitation of Christ II, 11, 4

I always got the feeling that Benedict "retired" in February 2013 to serve as a watchman - of his successor, of new theological movements, of his enemies, of the wolves within the Church. Absence makes the heart grow fonder and you can be sure that Benedict counted on a renewed sense of love and loyalty for him and his pontificate borne from absence to give weight to his thoughts.

Do not be fooled: Benedict does not think much of the Francis pontificate. Benedict has not endorsed a single major initiative of the the Francis regime, even after being practically begged by the Vatican to do so. The only fig leaf that Benedict has thrown Francis way is a vague feeling of warmth towards Francis, which, in Benedict's old age, might be gas.

But on what hill, exactly, would Benedict chose to make war?

I spend a decent amount of time reading the writings between Catholic intellectuals who disagree with one another profoundly. They are always kind to a fault and careful to couch their disagreements in a general sense of unity. Benedict and Cardinal Sarah, his co-author, have apparently decided to no longer play that game:

“Like Augustine we can say: ‘I cannot be silent! I know indeed how pernicious silence would be for me….It is to Christ that I will have to account for the sheep entrusted to my care. I can’t keep quiet or pretend ignorance.”

A living pope and a high-ranking Cardinal are saying out loud that the current occupant of St. Peter is journeying down the path that would cause the sheep of St. Peter to be slaughtered. This is an open invitation to battle between two camps in the Church that are deeply at odds.

An old, feeble man and a Cardinal who has sworn to obey the very person that he is accusing of  forsaking Christ against the pope, almost all of the world's bishops and cardinals, the Vatican and mainstream media and much of the Catholic intellectual establishment.

I sense that Benedict feels that his time is growing short and that he seeks for his long, noble life to end on a note of sacrifice for Christ. He knows that he will be torn to shreds by Team Francis for this. I don't think he cares. His worry is the judgement of Christ, whom he will be meeting soon.

That makes this an act of sacrifice and of martyrdom. Cardinal Sarah, based in Rome, who hears much of what is being planned, must be genuinely shaken to have taken this step. He must have heard that the post-Amazon exhortation is truly odious and faithless. He must know that it is time to pick a side.

Francis, or Christ?

Book Review: Antonio Socci's "The Secret of Benedict XVI: Is He Still the Pope?"

They call to me from Seir:
Watchman, how much longer the night?
Watchman, how much longer the night?
Isaiah 21:11

There is a lot to get through here. Point form is the best way to go:

- Benedict XVI, and the people around him, still consider Benedict to be a pope. Socci, I think, conclusively demonstrates this. Benedict believed that there could be a retired pope who no longer does the work of the papacy and an active pope who manages the Church. This idea is without support or precedent in Church history. The other popes who resigned made it clear that they were no longer a pope - they took different titles in the Church, whether it be Bishop or Cardinal, to demonstrate this. Benedict pointedly refused to do this.

If you believe that it is possible there could be a pope (Benedict) who is retired and the pope (Francis) then you can accept that Francis is pope.

If you believe that there can only be one pope alive at a time, and upon death or complete renunciation of the papal office the Church elects their successor, then you have to affirm that Benedict is still pope.

This is the question that the reader must answer for themselves.

- Socci believes that Benedict is still the pope. This is conclusively shown on pp. 60:

"This, in the case of Benedict XVI we must ask, did he truly resign from all of the Petrine ministry? Is he no longer pope? The answer to this question, today, looking at the last six years, is clearly, "No."

- Russia, Russia, Russia. Benedict was intimately familiar with the Fatima apparitions and their insistence on the conversion of Russia. Socci demonstrates that Benedict spent most of his pontificate forging close relations with the Russian Orthodox Church with the hope of creating the conditions necessary for the schism between East and West to mend. 

This alarmed the Obama Administration and the Hillary Clinton State Department because they considered it to be reckless outreach to the Russians. In the eyes of Clinton's State Department the Vatican was just another regime that could be changed with the right pushing and prodding. They considered Vatican City to be another Libya - an old, stubborn regime to be changed in the name of liberalism.

The arrogance and hatred of Obama, Clinton and the thousands of young staffers in the government who proceeded to use the power of the United States to interfere in the Church is astronomical. And interfere they did. This is the same crew that listened to every call a friendly German Chancellor Angela Merkel made while in office until its discovery by Wikileaks. This crew hated Benedict and his conservative values. Benedict was aware of this. It is probable that the Obama/Clinton NSA/State Department did everything they could to make Papa Benedict's life a living hell from 2009-2013. The amount of intervention in Church affairs by the Western intelligence community is a story that has yet to be told.

Benedict was viewed as too close to Russia, something he shared with the Italian government of the day. November 2011 - 15 months before Benedict made his shock announcement - saw the resignation of an Italian government that held a parliamentary majority because the United States, Germany and France detested its premier for holding too close relations to Putin and opposing the ouster of Qaddafi in Libya. Socci shows that the liberal Western powers had power in Italy and they were not afraid to flex it.

Benedict and John Paul II actively opposed US Military Engagements in the Middle East and Europe that saw Christians lose their ancestral territory and be slaughtered repeatedly. The two popes held a common dream of a united Christianity from the Atlantic to the Urals that required Russia to convert and be a partner in the Church where an effective opposition to western degeneracy could be made. No doubt the prophecy of Fatima - with the stated need for Russia to convert - was on the mind of both men.

This rankled the Western powers and they wanted Benedict gone. The young liberals in the Obama government loathed Benedict and did everything they could - from unflattering leaks (based on NSA intercepts), to embarrassing his allies, to stoking up opposition in controlled media - to get him to abdicate. It was and remains unprecedented for the British Government to offer up their embassy in Vatican City to Cardinal Cormac Murphy O-Connor, leader of the anti-Benedict St. Gallen group, to meet with 15 Cardinals on the eve of the conclave to plot strategy. It is against Canon Law for Cardinals to accept state sponsorship for a desired conclave outcome.

Benedict, and many other people, believed that Archbishop of Milan Cardinal Scola would be elected the next pope and continue Benedict's work. Scola had been in full favour of warm relations with Russia, was seen as very pro-Russian, and was subsequently opposed by the Obama/Clinton/UK/France axis. Lies about Cardinal Scola spread right before the conclave with their origins unknown. It is possible that they originated with Western intelligence who were determined to take down a pro-Fatima, pro-dialogue with Russia Cardinal. This is completely against Canon rules that govern a conclave.

The world got Francis. Joe Biden spent much of 2013 and 2014 meeting with the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and urging it to break communion with the Russian Orthodox Church over Russia's invasion of Crimea, which further alienated the Russian Church from the rest of the Orthodox world and the West, undoing the work of John Paul II and Benedict. Leaked e-mails of John Podesta, former chief of staff to Bill Clinton and campaign chairman of Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign, say that he had been "waiting for this moment" when Benedict had resigned and that his organization (Catholics for the Common Good) was ready to spring into action. 

Throughout 2013-2016, when Wikileaks released e-mails of Podesta and friends, it was clear that the full-court press to change the Church, to liberalize all of its doctrines and to turn it to a democracy from its natural monarchical state was underway. Francis is demonstrated in the book to be oblivious to the maneuvers of the liberal governments, earning a pat on the head and a "good boy" when he does things that pleases their arch-liberal agenda. George Soros donated $650,000 to Francis' trip the USA in 2015. There has been no explanation why international bank wires - a financial system controlled entirely by Obama's Washington - into and out of Vatican were cut off in the days before Benedict's resignation and resumed immediately thereafter.

- Benedict, while saying outwardly that he was not pressured to resign, wrote this as a preface to Cardinal Sarah's book in 2016:

"I remain particularly struck by a passage of his [Saint Ignatius] Letter to the Ephesians: It is better to remain in silence and to be, than to speak and not to be."

This sounds like a man who fears what would happen to him if he spoke.

- Benedict, despite the official pronouncements made by Vatican Media, has made clear his view that the Church is in serious trouble. He is not on Team Francis. There is a long list of quotations from Benedict in his writings over the last 4 years that demonstrates this. Here is an example:

"The sorrow to some over my resignation has turned to anger, which no longer regards only the resignation, but which grows ever greater against me personally and against all of my pontificate. In this way a pontificate becomes devalued and merged into the sadness over the present situation of the Church." 

Not Team Francis.

 - Benedict's resignation text is odd. It talks about resigning the ministry of St. Peter and Bishop of Rome, but not the office. Here is an example of how Paul VI wrote the same kind of letter that was to take into effect if he fell into grave illness:

"we renounce our holy and canonical office, both as Bishop of Rome and head of the same Holy Catholic Church."

Benedict has never put out such a statement. He has never renounced the office, only the active workload to be done by that office. This is not OK. Benedict knows that this is novel, "I have taken this step with full awareness of its gravity and even its novelty." The structure of the papacy doesn't do novelty and cannot be changed by a pope.

Lightning hits St. Peter's Basilica. Satan hits Peter. The institutional Church is being led by a man, Francis, that enjoys no supernatural protection from error. Coupled with the absolute monarchy structure of the papacy this had the makings, and it has borne out, of being an absolute catastrophe.
I don't know how this ends. The papacy is the restrainer holding back the Antichrist. If Benedict dies, and no valid conclave replaces him, that evil force can run lose to an even greater extent than it already has. God help us all.

Don't Be Unsure of Your Place in Heaven - This Christmas, Be Filled With Confidence

And Jesus answering, spoke again in parables to them, saying: The kingdom of heaven is likened to a king, who made a marriage for his son. And he sent his servants, to call them that were invited to the marriage; and they would not come. Again he sent other servants, saying: Tell them that were invited, Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my calves and fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come ye to the marriage. But they neglected, and went their own ways, one to his farm, and another to his merchandise.

And the rest laid hands on his servants, and having treated them contumeliously, put them to death. But when the king had heard of it, he was angry, and sending his armies, he destroyed those murderers, and burnt their city. Then he saith to his servants: The marriage indeed is ready; but they that were invited were not worthy. Go ye therefore into the highways; and as many as you shall find, call to the marriage. And his servants going forth into the ways, gathered together all that they found, both bad and good: and the marriage was filled with guests.

And the king went in to see the guests: and he saw there a man who had not on a wedding garment. And he saith to him: Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? But he was silent. Then the king said to the waiters: Bind his hands and feet, and cast him into the exterior darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen. (St. Matthew 22:1-14)

Our Lord told us many times, in very few words, how to get to Heaven. It is an amazing characteristic of the Gospel. Let's analyze the above passage for a minute.

How can we be reasonably sure of our place in Heaven?

After Adam and Eve committed Original Sin the gates of Heaven were slammed shut to Humanity. We lost all of the Sanctifying Grace in our souls that God gave us automatically upon Creation. Because humans now were tarred with sin, and without sanctifying Grace, we could not enter Heaven.

God's justice and wisdom put the souls of the righteous - either Jews who observed the Old Law in a just way or Gentiles who pleased Him by living a life of righteousness according to the natural law imprinted in the souls of every person - in limbo after death until Christ's resurrection. Everyone else went to Hell.

The Old Law could not get anyone to Heaven because the Old Law did not infuse Grace into our souls. It merely mitigated the offence of some sin by the sacrifices of animals but it could not reconcile us with our Creator. The sacrifices of animals were not powerful enough to make up for the amount that we estranged ourselves from God.  It was only enough to mitigate God's anger for some righteous people to not experience the pains of Hell upon death but it could not bestow Heaven. Remember, God is spotless and without blemish. We can not enter Heaven unless our souls are spotless and without blemish, in the same way that Humanity was created before The Fall.

Christ's birth, life, death and resurrection threw open the gates of Heaven again because Christ offered Himself, His blameless self, in the place of sinners who deserve nothing but death. God accepted this sacrifice to atone for all of the sins that had been committed in the past and that would be committed in the future.


Christ's death and resurrection did not automatically re-infuse Grace back into our souls. We have to acquire that ourselves, for free from God, by accepting the gift by our own free will. In order to be privy to these blessings we need a wedding garment.

In this parable, of Heaven and of Judgement, the wedding garment refers to whether or not a person has sanctifying grace in their souls upon Judgement.

If you have any Sanctifying Grace in your soul upon death you will eventually make it to Heaven. There is no question about it.

Humans have no Sanctifying Grace upon birth, because of Original Sin.That is why children who die without being baptized enter into limbo, a place of natural happiness where no one can see God, and not Heaven.

Original Sin, like all Mortal Sin, destroys the Sanctifying Grace in our souls. It destroys our wedding garment and makes Humanity unfit for Eternal Life.

Christ's work on Earth - His Gospel - was dedicated to giving Humanity highly visible, highly tangible streams of Grace that we could ALWAYS rely on without fail.

They are the Sacraments. Baptism. Eucharist. Confirmation. Reconciliation. Anointing of the sick. Marriage. Holy orders.

If you died after receiving any Sacrament in a worthy manner you will absolutely go to Heaven. That is God's promise to Humanity. It is what Christ's life was dedicated to establishing and the glory of his death and resurrection.

When you see someone baptized you should be picturing a priest physically inputting grace into a soul for the first time. When someone makes a good confession the priest, in the absolution, removes all of the mortal sin from a person's soul and physically inputs our wedding garment. When you are receiving the Eucharist in a worthy manner you are physically receiving Grace - the Body and Blood of God - into your soul. When a person gets confirmed, or receives the last rites, or gets married, or is ordained with Holy Orders, they are physically receiving Sanctifying Grace into their souls.

The more Grace in your soul, the stronger your connection to God, the more fruits you will produce, the more you can resist sin.

Mortal sin will destroy the Sanctifying Grace in our souls and the Gates of Heaven are shut until we reconcile ourselves with a Sacrament received in a worthy way and re-infuse our souls with Grace. That is usually confession but can be Anointing of the Sick for the dying. Additionally, a baptized person can make a perfect Act of Contrition before death, like the good thief did, but unlike the Sacraments, there is no formal process that gives peace of mind and certainty to the believer that grace has been deceived. It is a tricky thing to do correctly.

Other Churches outside of the Catholic Church (most of the time, and apart from the Orthodox) only provide one sacrament, one way to get Sanctifying Grace into your soul: Baptism.

The Catholic Church provides seven. Don't take your chances.

Make sure that you die with your wedding garment. Do not let everything going on in the world confuse or shake you. Do everything that you can to make sure that you die with Sanctifying Grace in your soul. Nothing else truly matters.

Pray the Rosary With Me - In Under 15 Minutes!

And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. (St. Luke 1:28)

I have recorded myself praying the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary. I have separated it into five decades - the Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries. It is in English - sorry, no Latin.

The recordings clock in at 14:10 minutes each. I recorded at this speed to help those who wish to pray the Rosary but need to do so in a more compressed time period. You can listen to it while driving, doing the laundry, before falling asleep. What matters is that praying the Rosary straightens your relationship with God. Hopefully this aid helps to that end.

4 Predictions for the 2020's

And blessed is he that shall not be scandalized in me. (St. Matthew 11:6)

With the end of the decade a mere twelve days away, I have some thoughts on what we can expect over the next ten years.

1.) The person who replaces Francis is going to be even worse.

I go back-and-forth on whether or not Francis is going to resign or if he will only leave being carried out on a stretcher.

He and his entourage have dropped repeated hints that resignation is in the cards. Robin Rome, sodomite extraordinaire and friend of Francis, has said that he thinks the next time Francis visits Argentina it will be for good and never to leave. Francis seems extremely interested in packing the College of Cardinals with like-minded degenerates, which is a point in favour of the resignation thesis.

I have my doubts, for a few reasons. 

Number one, the floated resignation is a time-tested trick by powerful people to draw out traitors amongst their ranks, people who are too ambitious for their own good. Joseph Stalin repeatedly talked about his succession during his dinner parties for example, even when he had no intention of resigning at all, because he wanted to see which one of his ministers was getting too big for his britches.

Number two, Francis seems to have been seeking power for his entire adult life and appears to have few other hobbies. I know people like this. They live for their work. Having sought and obtained the highest power that he could possible have asked for, I suspect the only way he will willingly relinquish it is by dying.

Which brings us to his successor, however it comes (please notice I'm using very careful language about all of this.)

I believe his successor will be someone with a warm personality, diplomatic, careful and with the self-control with his tongue that Francis lacks. He will be smart enough not to surround himself with such disreputable characters which hurt Francis considerably. BUT:

He will far more aggressive in attempting to change the Faith. The successor of Francis will be in favour of ordaining women, normalizing homosexuals and far less tolerant of groups like the SSPX and FSSP. Where Francis was personally a corrupt jerk but slow with his agenda for change, his successor will be the opposite: personally impeccable but ruthless in persecuting the enemies of modernism.  

2.) The Catholic Church will face incredible financial difficulties.

I am working on a longer piece about this, and I am not done my research, but I foresee mass-liquidations of Church assets (this has already begun) as a prelude to a serious cash crunch in the Church. I expect Western societies to follow the lead of New York  and change laws to allow historical lawsuits against the Church with tens of billions of dollars of damages as a result. Since the priests are long-dead, and since the Church is feeble and without the credibility to go after false claims and grifters, it will simply pay out until it can't pay no more. 

3.) The faithful are going to either fight or abandon their faith. There is no middle ground.

I have written before about the danger that the "woke" generation poses to the Faith. Whereas baby boomers were limited by sentimentality and hedonism from fully confronting the Church, the "woke" generation will not be hindered by these things. Any Bishop that refuses to kowtow to the Satanic agenda in his schools and churches will be harassed and vilified. Traditional Catholics will lose some of their public spaces for worship: Mass in private homes will become far more common. Lukewarm Catholics will become an endangered species; they will simply stop identifying as Catholic at all.

4.) God will intervene.

I am going to keep this vague. There are many, many possibilities of what may occur. I have noticed - and I am sure that you have as well - that things are accelerating. It is said that God will wait until every single person that He wills is on the Barque of Peter before He intervenes. That could be your wife, husband, children, parents, cousins, friends, co-workers. God, in His love, is enduring all of this evil to make sure that the maximum amount of people are saved before He intervenes.

Because God is love and his timing is perfect.

Happy holidays.

Come, I will show thee the condemnation of the great harlot, who sitteth upon many waters

These have one design: and their strength and power they shall deliver to the beast. These shall fight with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them, because he is Lord of lords, and King of kings, and they that are with him are called, and elect, and faithful. And he said to me: The waters which thou sawest, where the harlot sitteth, are peoples, and nations, and tongues. (Apoc. of St. John 17:13)

The founding myth of Europe, or Europa, in its pre-Christian days was of a beautiful woman who was forcibly kidnapped by Zeus, the pagan god, in bull form. The bull is interchangeably referred to as a beast in pre-Christian literature. After being forcibly kidnapped, the woman is seduced by the bull, who represents the power of the whole pantheon of pagan gods. Willing submitting herself to the power of the pagan gods, she marries the bull and derives strength and riches from the spiritual force that she has wedded herself to.

St. John used the same symbol - a woman riding a scarlet beast - because to readers in the ancient world it would be clear that he was talking about Europe. St. John tells us that the Beast (paganism that dominates Europe) "was" (because Europe was pagan before Christ), "and is not" (because Europe will become Christian), "and shall come up out of the bottomless pit, and go into destruction" (because Europe will become pagan once again.)

Does this sound familiar?

St. John was telling us that Europe - who was pagan and became Christian - would apostatize in the last days and become pagan again. Except this time the beast that dominates Europe came "out of the bottomless pit" (hell) and "will go into destruction."

St. John calls Europe a "whore" because she has cheated on Christ - the force that made Europe strong, powerful, faithful, the "fairest part of Earth" - with paganism once again. That is why St. John uses the imagery of the "whore" throughout chapter 17.

Europe became powerful because the "blood of the saints" fought for Europe (protected it from pagans and Muslims), educated Europe (in the days after the Roman Empire collapsed it was Catholic monks throughout Europe that kept literacy and law alive and opened up the first institutions that eventually became schools) - and protected Europe spiritually from evil for the entirety of Christendom.

After God did all of this for Europe, after God rescued it from paganism and protected it from all foreign attackers and from the power of the devil, it has collectively chosen to submit itself to the scarlet beast from hell that is "full of names of blasphemy." That is why Europe is a "whore", who seeks to corrupt the rest of the world with her "whoredom."

Recall what Christ said about towns that saw miracles and had experienced God's great power and still rejected Him:

Woe to thee, Corozain, woe to thee, Bethsaida: for if in Tyre and Sidon had been wrought the miracles that have been wrought in you, they had long ago done penance in sackcloth and ashes. But I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment, than for you. And thou Capharnaum, shalt thou be exalted up to heaven? thou shalt go down even unto hell. For if in Sodom had been wrought the miracles that have been wrought in thee, perhaps it had remained unto this day. But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee. (St. Matthew 11:21-24)

Europe is the "mother of fornications" because every ideology that dominates in our secular age - freemasonry, secularism, atheism, materialism, socialism, communism, feminism - began there and spread throughout the world, as St. John says, and the world "became drunk with the wine of her whoredom."  Europe has chosen to wed itself to ideologies that are straight from hell. St. John makes it clear that this beast - scarlet in colour, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns - is the devil incarnate.

Because Europe apostatized first - Europe started becoming extremely secular before North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia all of which are becoming secular following its lead - and used its great power to corrupt the world, it is in for special judgement. That is what St. John is describing in chapters 17, 18 and 19.

Don't believe me? Can you imagine that after all that God did for Europe, which I outlined above, after God made Europe the home of His Church, the European Union did this:

And, to shake their fist at God, they deliberately built the European parliament to look like this:

And put a woman riding a beast, Europe wedding itself to the devil, outside of their 
parliament and on their money:

Or, as St. John says, "And he said to me: The waters which thou sawest, where the harlot sitteth, are peoples, and nations, and tongues" (Europe sits on many peoples, nations, and tongues a prescient description of the European Union.)

The last quarter of Chapter 17 and the first half of Chapter 18 describe what happens to Europe:

Europe may have decided to submit to the Devil, but the "beast" hates the Whore (Europe) and "burns her flesh with fire" (all of the wars of the 20th century.) This makes sense as Europe was the home of the Church for millennia and the home of millions of saints that spread the faith throughout the whole world. Even if Europe has decided to worship evil the Devil still hates it.

The next chapter - chapter 18 - after St. John expertly and clearly summarizes the return of Europe to paganism, details something frightening:

God tells His people, the faithful Christians that remain, to get out of Europe:

"And I heard another voice from heaven, saying: Go out from her, my people; that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and the Lord hath remembered her iniquities." (18:4-6)

God is telling His faithful that if we stay within Europe we may partake in her sins (the "European way of life" that has rejected God) and might suffer along her plagues.

Now please read this....

"As much as she hath glorified herself, and lived in delicacies, so much torment and sorrow give ye to her; because she saith in her heart: I sit a queen, and am no widow; and sorrow I shall not see. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine, and she shall be burnt with the fire; because God is strong, who shall judge her." (18:7-8)

God is going to destroy pagan Europe with fire.

I am absolutely certain of this.

This chapter has often been interpreted to mean the destruction of Rome but that is mixing up two separate events. The first event is the destruction of mainland Europe by fire. Perhaps that is why the Bishop in White is seen bleeding, in pain, going up a large hill in the partially released Third Secret of Fatima? The second event is the earthquake that destroys pagan Rome. 

And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

This is not something to be sad about for the believer: Europe has been the source of every poisonous ideology that has spread among the world. The Europe that we love, that my parents came from, that created Christendom, is dead. It doesn't exist anymore. Only pagan Europe exists now. Chapter 19 tells us that heaven celebrates when Pagan Europe is destroyed:

After these things I heard as it were the voice of much people in heaven, saying: Alleluia. Salvation, and glory, and power is to our God. For true and just are his judgments, who hath judged the great harlot which corrupted the earth with her fornication, and hath revenged the blood of his servants, at her hands. And again they said: Alleluia. And her smoke ascendeth for ever and ever. And the four and twenty ancients, and the four living creatures fell down and adored God that sitteth upon the throne, saying: Amen; Alleluia. And a voice came out from the throne, saying: Give praise to our God, all ye his servants; and you that fear him, little and great. (19:1-6)

 I expect after the destruction of the European mainland, and the European Church, and the Beast that gives pagan Europe its power, for the Catholic faith to purify itself: "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give glory to him; for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath prepared herself."

A Central Mystery of The Book of Revelation, Explained

And I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was clothed round about with purple and scarlet, and gilt with gold, and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand, full of the abomination and filthiness of her fornication. And on her forehead a name was written: A mystery; Babylon the great, the mother of the fornications, and the abominations of the earth. (Apoc. of St. John 17:3-5)

I am in Brussels, Belgium as part of my sojourn through Western Europe on a mix of business and pilgrimage. I had arranged to meet an educated man, someone who is well-versed in the history of Europe, someone who teaches at a University, outside of the EU Council of Ministers building. I had asked to see the statue above, of a woman riding a beast.

It was gone.

The afternoon wasn't a complete loss. Over lunch this gentleman made it absolutely clear to me that St. John was describing Europe in Chapter 17 of his Apocalypse (see excerpt above). His certainty was absolute.

Europa, a figure of mythology and the figure by which Europe is named, was known to educated people of the ancient world. The story was well known: Europa was kidnapped and seduced by Zeus (in the form of a bull) and they married. Europa is the woman, the continent, and the bull (Zeus) is the pagan god that gives the marriage power and life.

My lunch guest told me that St. John used the imagery of the woman riding the beast because other than saying "Europa" it was the clearest way of saying the continent of "Europe." It would be the equivalent of me writing about Michael Jordan and saying "#23 of the Chicago Bulls" rather than "Michael Jordan." Everyone would know what I meant. And in St. John's time, and for generations after, everyone understood that he meant Europe.

By painting a picture with his words of Europa riding a beast, St. John was telling us that in the last days Europe would form a marriage union with another spiritual power, like she first did with Zeus and then with God. She is a "harlot" because she abandoned God, who gave Her all of Her strength, knowledge and riches, for this new lover, this new spiritual power, this beast. By its description St. John clearly means Satan.

I am still processing the ramifications of this information while reading Chapter 17 multiple times. It makes the whole chapter incredibly clear and being here in Europe, having visited London, Munich, Paris and Brussels, it's like watching Revelation play out in front of my eyes.

The European Union chose to put that statue, of a woman riding a beast, in front of its Council of Ministers building. It's reasoning was the story of Greek mythology that I just explained. But the people in charge are versed in the classics - they know that a woman riding a beast is foretold in Revelations.

And they don't care. They worship a different god now. I wouldn't be surprised if that statue wasn't inside one of the European Union buildings, safe from people like me, or moved into a Freemasonic lodge.

These are the same people that did this:

They want everyone to know about their new marriage.

They want everyone to know about their new master.

Benedict is Going to Die Soon - And That Changes Everything

And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity already worketh; only that he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way. (2 Thes 2:6-8)

I believe the institution of the papacy - Peter - is the "he" that St. Paul referred to above.

Jesus Christ appeared to St. Peter after His resurrection, when all of the Apostles were gathered together, and in private asked him: “Simon son of John, lovest thou me more than these?” (St. John 21:15) The "these" that Our Lord was referring to were the other Apostles that had gathered. Christ confirmed that because Peter loved him the most - "more than these" - it was his responsibility, through perpetual successors, to feed His lambs and tend to his sheep. He also told him that he would have the honor - the only Apostle that it was granted to - of dying by Crucifixion, in the same manner as Christ. This was both a sign and a symbol to the universal Church of the authority and power that had been given unto Peter.

What happens when Peter is gone?

Benedict is 92 years old. He is not well. He does not have the right to leave the Vatican to visit friends and family. He is a prisoner within St. Peter. He is the last person to have been blessed with the powers and protections of the papacy. He will die. I suspect it will be soon.

There is an entire den of hyenas waiting to pin multiple scandals on Pope Benedict once he is dead and unable to defend himself. Francis has surrounded himself with amoral greaseballs, and among other things, amoral greaseballs are so easy to predict because they will always choose the path of maximum depravity.

They will seek to pin all of the financial and sexual storms currently battering the Vatican and waiting ashore to make landfall on the deceased Benedict. They will use these scandals of amoral sodomites and apostates to go after the supporters of Tradition in the Church.

Benedict's death is going to be a watershed moment in the history of the world. It will leave a man sitting in Peter's chair who holds none of Peter’s powers, protections or authority from God with no rival claimant. I do not believe the Bishops have the courage to call an "imperfect council" upon Benedict's death and elect a successor. They will continue to pursue their specialty: doing nothing and cowering.

Without a successor to St. Peter alive - with the protection given to the Church by his presence and the graces to the faithful of his prayers - in the world we can expect an outpouring of malice and evil on the world. He who has held evil at bay will have been taken out of the way. What happens next can only be trials and tribulations for humanity, who is the Devil's ancient enemy, living as most of us do without invoking the name of God for protection and guidance.

What difference does it make if a man who does not exercise the active office of the papacy is dead? What visible difference will you and I be able to see?

At first, none. We will visually see no difference. But spiritually we will be able to feel it. In the same way a spiritually attuned person can sense malice and evil in those who serve the Devil we will be able to sense that something has just gone terribly amiss. It will be a similar feeling that millions got when they first saw Francis wearing white in March 2013.

Perhaps that will spur even greater numbers to take up resistance to the non-believers who currently have authority in the Church. I do not doubt the ability of God to turn a huge negative into an overwhelming positive. But what I do know is that nothing will ever be the same.

Something is Brewing in the Vatican


For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed: nor hidden, that shall not be known. For whatsoever things you have spoken in darkness, shall be published in the light: and that which you have spoken in the ear in the chambers, shall be preached on the housetops. (St. Luke 12:2-3)

I would like to write something about the extremely odd series of police raids/financial shenanigans/firings/forced dismissals/resignations that have been coming out of the Vatican all Autumn, but I don't know what to make of it.

Zero Hedge refers to it as a "mystery" scandal, and to be honest, this mystery has been developing for months.

All of these individual stories will eventually fit together like a puzzle, but unfortunately, we have not been given the picture as of yet. We don't know what we are dealing with.

If I were to guess, I would say:

Some major criminal financial activities occurred, the perpetrators being people Francis appointed and promoted. Some members of the police were in on it. The criminal financial activities have to do with theft, embezzlement, fraud and sex. Francis is forcing resignations and firing people to demonstrate at a future point of time that he was active in combating activities that couldn't have happened without the people he promoted to the positions that he did. Francis is trying to cover his own liability.

Alternatively: Francis and Co. are desperately trying to insure something big isn't found or investigated further. They saw what the "Vatican Leaks" scandal did to Benedict and they don't want something similar to hurt Francis.

If you have any ideas of your own, especially if you are a Person Who Knows Things, I am all e-mails.

The One Word in the New Testament That You Should Be Thinking About

"And whosoever shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me; it were better for him that a millstone were hanged around his neck, and he were cast into the sea."
(St. Mark 9:41)

"And a mighty angel took up a stone, as it were a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying: With such violence as this shall Babylon, that great city, be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all."
(Revelation 18:21)

All praise be to Jesus Christ, forever and ever amen.

True genesis of this post:

My eyes open this morning. The first thing I think, literally before I am fully awake: the word millstone is used to describe the scandalization of children by Our Lord and also the exact same word is used to describe the method by which "Babylon" is destroyed. That's the only time the word is used in the New Testament because Our Lord wanted to make the connection perfectly clear.

But is it? I had no idea. I wasn't in front of a computer.

Yup. It is:

The Holy Ghost was so emphatic about its importance that it included this saying from Christ in all three synoptic Gospels. These things do not happen by accident. Sacred Scripture was inspired in such a way by God to help His people in millions and millions of different ways. It is clear that God did this on purpose: He wanted to let us know that it was the corruption/scandalization of children that would be the cause of Babylon to be destroyed.

Now the question: What is Babylon?

If you read the subsequent verses it is pretty clear that it means Rome. The millstone touches off an earthquake that results in the destruction of Rome. Was it the paedophilia scandal by mostly homosexual clergy that has disgraced the Church in the eyes of the world and ruined the faith of millions that caused this millstone? If Babylon isn't Rome, is it a the wider culture that corrupts youth, and is this millstone meant for the whole world?

All praise be to Jesus Christ, forever and ever amen.

God Was Screaming For Our Attention In The Run Up to the 100th Anniversary of Fatima 2017, We Ignored Him, Now We Are About to Reap the Whirlwind

An evil and adulterous generation seeketh a sign: and a sign shall not be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet. For as Jonas was in the whale's belly three days and three nights: so shall the Son of man be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights. The men of Ninive shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they did penance at the preaching of Jonas. And behold a greater than Jonas here. The queen of the south shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold a greater than Solomon here. And when an unclean spirit is gone out of a man he walketh through dry places seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith: I will return into my house from whence I came out. And coming he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then he goeth, and taketh with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is made worse than the first. So shall it be also to this wicked generation. (St. Matthew 12:39-45)

Good people have e-mailed me in response to the Akita article saying something like: "Don't we deserve a Warning before the Fire comes?" I agree. We do. A loving God would provide one. And a loving God did.  This is a must-read article to understand why we are on the verge of fire and why God fulfilled his loving responsibility to warn us beforehand.

In order for this post not to become 5000 words I am going to take a shortcut. I am going to state a few things and then provide the links for the support while I move on to the main course. Link 1. Link 2.

God uses the signs of the heavens (the universe) and of the earth (nature) to communicate with us. The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
(Psalm 19:1). He has always done so - the Old and New Testament are filled to the brim of such examples. One of the most profound ways He has communicated with us has been by total solar eclipses. God used a total solar eclipse over ancient Nineveh to convince them to listen to the Prophet Jonah and repent. It was not Jonah's preaching that convinced them to repent - it was the total darkness in the middle of the day that did it.

Ancient Nineveh experienced "the sign of Jonah" (the eclipse) twice in recent history - once on August 21, 1914 on the outbreak of the First World War. This was a warning sign to Christendom that it was about to engage in a whole sale slaughter that would lead to the gates of hell (fascism and communism) being unleashed. God, being good, tried warning His people to foresake the war that had been declared but not yet fought. His people did not listen.

The second time Ancient Nineveh experienced "the sign of Jonah" in recent memory was on August 11, 1999.

Days after:

Was God trying to tell us that the beginning of a new Great Persecution was beginning?

The Great American Solar Eclipse

The Great American Solar Eclipse occurred in America - only in America, the world's last superpower and most dominant political, economic and cultural force on the planet - on August 21, 2017 the Feast of Our Lady of Knock. Knock is an incredibly powerful apocalyptic apparition. Tradition in Action has an incredible write up to make the case. The appearance of the empty altar (signalling the Novus Ordo) and St. John (who wrote the Book of Revelation) POINTING TO A BOOK WHILE APPEARING TO SAY SOMETHING is what I will always remember from those articles. Again, Heaven has warned us, often in obvious ways.

The obvious conclusion to draw from the "sign of Jonah" appearing in such a obvious way over the United States was that country was being called by God to repentance in the same way of Ancient Nineveh. The fact that this occurred in the run up to the 100th anniversary of Fatima should not be lost on anyone.

The entire country on August 21, 2017 stopped to ponder this unique phenomenon. It caught everyone's attention - to the religious, it was a sign from God. Because it was.

Do you remember how I just wrote that after the total solar eclipse on August 11, 1999 the site of Ancient Nineveh was hit by a devastating earthquake?

Guess what happened to the United States?

Hurricanes, fires, earthquakes all centered upon America.

But what was going on in the wider world?

On September 19 another earthquake hit Mexico, this time much closer to the Basilica of Our Lady. This occurred on the Feast Day of Our Lady of La Salette, apparitions which subsequently had occurred on the Feast Day of Our Lady of Knock. In fact, St. John,, the Virgin Mary and St. Joseph appeared to warn us about the Novus Ordo and the Apocalypse at the exact same hour Bishops were in France instituting the feast day of Our Lady of La Salette.

On the same day as this September 19 earthquake a Hurricane named...Maria....yes, go look it up....hit GUADELOUPE, Virgin Islands at a place within the islands called St. Croix (Holy Cross). Hurricane Maria then hit St. Lucia and Dominica (Lucia - Fatima, Dominica - St. Dominic who instituted the Rosary) while another hurricane named....JOSEPH....was swirling around the Atlantic.

Hurricane Maria then made the trip to Puerto Rico to hit....San Juan (St. John).

Remember: all of this happened in the 100 days leading up to the 100th anniversary of Fatima.

America has been called to repentance.
